disgusted in a whole parade of traders, and that includes john mccain, lindsey graham, george bush, who has sponsored the center in texas, and i suffered through two hours of propaganda out of the bush center, and they treat america as a whorehouse. stephen moore treats america like a whorehouse. it is not about the money. c-span keeps playing all of these people. i want to see some balance. one thing mentioned at the george bush center from the hispanic chamber of commerce guy, he was lobbing these wonderful hispanic companies. have any of them enrolled in either a five so they will be true to the 1986 amnesty, which, at that point, required all employers verify eligibility by these workers. they have not done it. we have george bush, mccain, they have done nothing but subvert the law for the last 25 years, and they are trying to put the nail in our coffin now. i would like to see more balance from c-span. there was a wonderful march for jobs in washington dc. i have seen none of that on c- span. i would love to see that. jeb, much loved in alabama, he was the speaker of the conference. th
and candidate often mocked the foreign policy of president george w. bush. but as president himself, obama cannot escape his mounting foreign policy folies and he and his administration and the american people are now bearing the embarrassing consequences.% . former egyptian president hosni mubarak, president obama helped force him from power more than two years ago, today was ordered to be released from prison by an egyptian court. to be released within 48 hours. mubarak's release is another slap in the face for mr. obama. it follows the ouster of the muslim brotherhood from power and mr. obama's president of choice, mohamed morsi. the violent and deadly clashes between the military-run government and muslim brotherhood and, in fact, -- have backed protest to the wall and they are responding. continuing with violence and all likelihood this friday when morsi supporters reportedly will conduct what they call a day of martyrs. and no relief for president obama in syria either. assad opposition forces claiming more than 1,000 civilians were killed ain chemical gas attacks today on the outski

a call from george w. bush and the former president said to mitt romney don't worry about the debate. you are going to do fine. i know from my own experience the president is not going to be fully prepared. this is in fact a truism. and, in president to run for re-election often you lose the first debate that they have. there are a lot of reasons. one is they haven't been spoken to for four years in the way they are about to be spoken to by their opponent traded their aides are somewhat more respectful than their opponents on the debate stage. second, they think they're prepared because they have dealing with these issues and they don't feel like they need to freshen up three of he didn't have a good mock debate in his mock debates were from mediocre to really bad. the day of the debate i ran into one of his people in the morning in denver who said what do you think? this person said i'm really worried trade i don't think he's ready for tonight and i'm worried about what is going to happen. as a result of that the stakes were a lot higher in later debates and there was a great moment when

that was invited had a scheduling conflict except former president george w. bush. the former president is recovering from a procedure to clear a blocked artery. so organizers invited his brother, former governor jeb bush, who also then declined. house speaker john boehner couldn't attend because he is on a 35-day bus tour for incumbent members. house republican majority member eric cantor declined because he was in north dakota touring agriculture businesses. john mccain also declined because he had public events in arizona. michael steele, the first black republican lieutenant governor of maryland and a national committee chair assessed the situation in the pages of "the washington post." he said it is part of a continuing narrative that the party finds itself in with these big deals from the minorities around the country and how they receive our response to them. in other words, you can't make the sale if you don't show up. joining me now, karen finney, and jonathan capehart. i would say it is a magical moment on the mall, in some ways, disheartening, no leadership from the republica

to the american people. vacation,going on that is such a tired, tired excuse. many times did george bush and other presidents go on vacation? people act like they should tell the president what to do. host: i wasn't making a reference to the n, but the fact there's been some talk the president even indicated when he met with the press corps a few weeks ago at a news conference that -- that a news conference would be forthcoming, and some speculated to do so before vacation next week. that is the frame of the question. caller: you're acting like you can tell him what to do. he is the president of the united states. in this congress has tried to tell him what to do. host: thank you from the call. ron has this point -- how about reaching out to congress? former governor and former 2012 republican presidential nominee mitt romney speaking to about 200 donors at lakewood in new hampshire, the headline from the washington times "romney sees a shutdown danger." from hisaiser not far new hampshire summer home. he said in his speech, i badly want obamacare to be stripped of its funds but we need to exercis

by liberals during the bush years, he has got to. george bush got resolution 1441 from the united nations that could at least make the plausible case, meant, invading iraq was legal under international law. if he doesn't get approval from the u.n. security council then barack obama will be violating international law. it will be an illegal act of war. and, that doesn't mean i'm against it necessarily or that i think president obama should care one wit about approval from the u.n. i don't think the united states should care about the u.n. at all. i think that the idea that somehow we give a veto to china and russia about the morality or efficacy or legitimacy of our foreign policy is bizarre but that is a system that liberals have been championing for a very, very long time including barack obama and the double-standards here are, you know, are just so daunting for the president, given what he had said about, you know, foreign policy when he was a candidate. that he is now going back on all of it and he is in a real pickle. alisyn: well, that is exactly right. so why would the president ac
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government

vituperative those times were. and there were people on the left who aimed some of that at george w. bush. admittedly, it's spun out of control now, because these folks are in control of the republican party. so it's at a fevered pitch now. but we've got this mad cycle going where each party -- yes, go ahead. >> but let me challenge that nancy pelosi had an opportunity to jump on george w. bush in the same regard. look at what she did here. she didn't play that game. she shot it down right away. i'm not going to get into delegitimization. let's watch nancy. she did not let them play this game. let's watch her, please. i'm sorry. >> okay, go ahead. >> she has pledged as a speaker she would giver the republicans rights like allowing them to introduce amendments to bills. but she may have trouble reigning in the democrats' appetite for revenge there has already been talk of multiple investigations and impeachment of the president. >> no. impeachment is off the table. >> and that's a pledge? >> well, it's a pledge, yes, it's a pledge. of course it is. it is a waste of time. >> so that's compl

base will do the same in 2016. they put up with george bush i, put up with bob dole. deeply disappointed by george w., disappointed with mitt romney. will now come loaded for bear for 2016. i predict the hard right will take over the republican party in 2016 and the nomination is going to rand paul. you watch. this is what i do for a living. >> well, i kind of doing it for a living. i get predictions wrong, too. i love he went out on a limb there. i guess i don't quite see it with rand paul for a couple of reasons. one of them i look at is we're talking about ted cruz, talking about rand paul, scott walker. there's going to be so much territory that's occupied by all sorts of different candidates on the right, i almost wonder if that's a perfect setup for the establishment candidate who seems to win these things. >> in the last six iowa caucuses, the winner has won the nomination twice. it's not a path to the nomination, santorum, huckabee, et cetera. also the moderate candidate or the mitt romney won last time, john mccain before that, this candidate tends to win the primar
is an assistant to george bush. welcome to you both. >> the town doesn't care in atheist and agnostics showed up to read. if they are going to let anybody do it why not? >> if you believe in separation of church and state there is no room for prayer of any kind. i don't care to jesus or allah or wicca n god. there should not be prayer in a public space because those of us who are believers should practice our beliefs in private and those who are not believers shouldn't be subject to beliefs of other people. if people are free to practice of religion, there should not be prayer in a public sprays. >> is that a separation of church in the constitution? >> yes, it doesn't mean there is not an existence of religion. our country is founded on judio- christian and in god we trust is engraved on our money. you don't have to accept it but you have to be tolerant. and i applaud the bum pull administration for coming down on tollerance and acceptance and the town in new york said it doesn't have to be just christian prayer and invite other nondenomination and atheist to say what they want. but remember, p
for diplomacy and pressure is running out when we haven't even tried direct diplomacy. george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. martha: that was back in 2011. -- that was back in 2007 and now we are on the cusp of other action going into syria. a younger looking barack obama then senator now president. he always had at the core of everything he talked about, getting out of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in the state of the union he talked about putting the decade of wars behind us. so what's your reaction to where we are today with syria? >> great disappointment. i supported him as an anti-war candidate. we had a surge in afghanistan. we went into libya. against the very thing he talked about in 2007. he has to inform congress within 48 hours of any kind of military action then he has 60 days after which he would need congressional authorization to continue a war. that started in 1973 and that was violated by bill clinton and ronald reagan. presi
for. george w. bush had done that i think he would've been, we would've been heard cries of impeachment. we had part of our immigration laws suspended by the president. there's just a variety of issues like that where he has gone outside. we have tension with our system, struggles between congress and the president. this one is very -- i think you'll see it continue. but there will be legal cases. >> i'm going to try to bounce around a little bit but again we will get to everybody. >> i was a little concerned to find that you were not in support of making the continuing resolution contingent upon removing what optional spending you move on obamacare. i feel very strongly. i speak from a point of view -- [applause] >> i think they do, too. >> this is not theoretical for me because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for our son to have major surgery. but, you know, what? that's the price i paid for the liberty of my children. i'm self-employed. i understand the consequent of that as i've limited options thanks our government on insurance. i understand that i
. a month later this country was hit harder than at any time since pearl harbor. but without blaming george w. bush for failing to act sufficiently to that warning an of august 6th, 2001, should anyone blame this president and his people for acting in time this time? joining me tonight from cairo, nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel and with us from new york, msnbc terrorist analyst governor ebben coleman. nbc is reporting now the interrogation behind the worldwide terrorist alert this week was an intercepted communication between the leader an of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and the leader of al qaeda central over in pakistan. the man who succeeded osama bin laden, ayman mohyeldin -- ayman zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from eve
them up. we saw that with george w. bush and saw that with john mccain and saw that with mitt romney when the republican primary voters wanted to win more than they wanted to be right in their own minds. i think they are sick of compromising their ideals to win. now they want some guy like ted cruz who just says what they think is true. and they really think getting rid of obama care will save the country. they don't care if it takes shutting down the government. in fact, they think shutting down the government is a good idea and ted cruz is with them. he doesn't think it's a problem. after all the post office closes on the weekends. >> i wish we could talk more. thank you. >>> a wall street trail blazer for women has died at 80. michelle is here to talk about that. mickey as she was known by some, she broke into the all boys club. that is just one of the reasons as to why she is a legend to many. >> yeah, she was the very first woman to actually have a seat at the new york stock exchange. that means could trade at the new york stock exchange. that was back in 1967. she would be the
are never satisfied about anything. you make fun of george bush because he didn't listen to the chatter that was going on. because he didn't take it seriously, because he was offering a book. now president obama, let's go in syria or let's stay in afghanistan or let's go into iran. he's not saying that. he's just taking precautions. precautions. closing embassies. so what does that have to do with anything. >> stephanie: did i -- i'm confused. wait a minute. what? i've defended the nsa program. >> caller: not you. i'm sorry. those two men on there. god, the only reason -- listen to your show is because of you. if i had to listen to them, god, no. >> you should just take us out back like old yeller and put us out of our misery. >> caller: you should. >> stephanie: thank you. and good morning to you two. >> start your week. [ laughter ] >> there's nothing to worry about. >> stephanie: whiners, whiners. >> everything is completely fine. >> stephanie: i agree with melissa. pat in california. >> send you down the memory hole. >> caller: stephanie, i love you guys. you're the greatest but lis
, george bush back about eight years ago tried to privatize social security. there was an organization started to defeat that. as americans united to protect social security at the time. and it morphed into americans united for change. i ran it before i went to the dnc and then they gave me the opportunity to come back and we're fighting the progressive cause. every single big issue that democrats and progressives are pursuing this summer, this fall, this term of congress, we're involved in. >> bill: i know one of them has been -- is obamacare. >> absolutely. >> bill: the republicans, first of all voted 40 times in the thousands repeal it. now the big move led by nut jobs ted cruz in the senate -- >> you said it, not me. i would have. >> bill: and tom mcclintock who i know is a certifiable nut job from california. in the house, they're saying -- in fact, we've got mcclintock at a town hall meeting, dan. i think it was yesterday in california. but he says the argument they're making now is unless we defund obamacare, we're going to shut down the government. here's mcclintock. >> house l
